Forager is an advanced open source multi-pool / multi-algo profit switching miner

It will use profit information from supporting pools to make sure you mine the most profitable algorithm at all times.
You can also use WhatToMine and CoinCalculators virtual pools for profit data and mine to pools which dont provide profit information, or even your custom pools.

Using integration with MSI Afterburner, it will get real time power usage and use this information to calculate how much you pay and adjust the profitability data.

Notes:

- Recommended drivers for AMD - 18.3.4/18.6.1.
  you can use https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/atic-install-tool-radeon-drivers-download-utility.422576/ to easily find and download specific driver version

- Recommended drivers for NVIDIA on Win 10 - 411.31+ for CUDA 10.
- Recommended drivers for NVIDIA on Win 10 - 398.+ for CUDA 9.2
- Recommended drivers for NVIDIA on Win 7 - 390.65-391.01

- Latest PowerShell core recommended for compatibility/performance: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/releases

- Windows 7 will require PowerShell v5 or PowerShell Core installed: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=54616

- Recommended MSI Afterburner version is 4.5.0 or newer
  prior versions don't support Intel CPU power usage and may not fully support your GPU

- Avermore and Sgminer X16r/X16s (AMD) during benchmarking submit "fake" shares that get rejected by the pools.
  Ignore this and after benchmarking it will work normally.

- XMR-Stak (AMD and NVIDIA) doesn't support multiple groups per GPU Vendor (2+ AMD or NVIDIA) out of the box.
  Of first run it will create "GroupName-Algorithm.txt" files for each group that you can edit once to include only the relevant GPUs.


Mixed rigs (AMD+NVIDIA) may have problems selecting specific devices. Use at your own risk.


Disclaimer:
The miners used in Forager come from reasonably reputable sources and tested by community.
There is SHA256 validation for miner downloads to make sure they are not replaced by fake ones.
However, I do not take any responsibility if any of the miners contains harmful code.
Therefore, NEVER keep coin wallets or other sensitive information on the computer you run Forager on.
If you get hacked, loose your coins, burn you video card or cpu, get your personal photos stolen or your cat poisoned - it's your fault.

Why use this?

"Profitable" is based on that you sell the coins you mined everyday. Eth have been most profitable for the last year.

Right... They changed it's status, so it's not showing

Quick fix would be to just add it on line $82, or comment the Exit on line #86 in Zpool.ps1
I'll think of a better validation, or just trust the user...

edit: disabled validation in master branch

All Claymore miners are already there
ClayCrypto-11.3 (AMD)
ClayDual-11.7 / ClayETH-11.7 (AMD,NVIDIA)
ClayNeoScrypt (AMD)
ClayZEC-12.6 (AMD)
ClayCrypto-4.0 (CPU)

Did Claymore release any other miner that is missing (apart from Claymore XPM)?

Yeah, I did post only the changes from Megaminer, but in all I have 70+ unique miners.
The chance is if you want it - I probably have it Wink

By default it is set to 10 minutes per day, but it can be changed based on your generosity in config.ini Wink

Code:
# Number of minutes to mine as a donation each day (default is 10 mins which is ~0.7%)
Donate = 10


can i use on rx550 ?

Specific miner may or may not support specific card, but Forager doesn't have limitations for specific cards
I tested even Intel integrated GPUs, but disabled it in code due to extreme inefficiency

AB integration is not necessary and is OFF by default
You can run "DeviceList.bat" to see detected devices to verify all your cards are detected

Without AB you will not get exact power consumption readings, but you can edit "Includes\amd-cards-tdp.json" to add estimated TDP of your card to get cost estimations
I will add more cards to the default file based on official TDP numbers

Additional pools can be added in MyPools.ps1 (see existing examples there)
If a pool provides profit estimations, and is large enough, I will consider adding it to Forager

Tried out your miner, i like these multiminer things
few issues:
1: http://www.gandalph3000.com/ gets webaccess blocked on my ESET, i dont really wanna whitelist a random site for downloads...
2: yuzi-co github mkxminer 310.zip download fails after taking forever to do so (few minutes,time is money Sad ) . deleting the json file for it bypassed this error for me as a workaround for now. all other downloads seem fine. failing to delete the json file resulted in endless download loop tho Sad
3: i cant make CPU mining work, even tho i ENABLED it in my config.ini Sad    8700k. tried with option "99" to see if any pools would use it, but nope Sad

anyways, nice tool, hope its OOB usable for me one day Smiley

This is official website of Cast XMR miner, which it tries to download. And ESET probably blocking it for distributing "Evil Crypto Miners"
Even if it is moved, there is no guarantee that it will not be blocked sometime again

This one is the largest miner in my collection, for reason unknown to me the developer made it weight close to 100MB, so depending on your connectivity it might take ages
I will check timeout parameters, perhaps I can solve this

This is strange, I'll recheck the logic

Tried starting it up, it starts mining zcash and never tries anything else, despite being very low in terms of profits.

That is very strange and I would need more if this is indeed happening
Can you provide log output and profits screen?

Sorry I was mistaken.  I was just impatient and didn't realize how long benchmarking took Smiley

However, I have noticed that forager will attempt to connect to us-east.hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580 and europe.hub.miningpoolhub.com:20580 and times out on both before connecting to miningpoolhub.  Unsure if this is a problem with miningpoolhub, I was unable to find the relevant code to where this url would be.

Ok, found the issue with mph, they report incorrect Urls on their API since last monero fork
Ill add a fix to the pool

edit: fixed in master branch and reported to MPH
